Need more info on the jeep. Is she a CJ5, CJ7? 6cyl, 4cyl, V8? If it has the 4cyl, avoid like the Plague. If it has the smaller I-6 you need to ditch the 1 barrel carburetor in favor of a weber 2 barrel. You need to know which transmission and transfer case it has, as well as which axles (all thes...

Undecided on make and model. Considering doing a build instead of a pre-assembled one.

Save your money and skip the Rossi. For a starter rifle my 3 boys (5yrs, 3yrs and 6mo) will be using the Henry Big Boy .357 lever action. That is what i recommend for young'uns to start with.
They will learn to shoot iron sights and get bigger before they get a scoped rifle (each of the 3 has a...

9mm camp rifle?
That looks fun. Real, honest to God, hold my beer and watch this kind of fun.
Hope you get it!
I'm getting a 1911. Probably a Metro Arms American Classic commander. Have been told by one of our resident 1911 experts that it's a good starter 1911.

You raise an excellent point about the recoil flinches. I'm not real concerned with recoil, I don't enjoy having my shoulder pounded, I just see it as the price you pay for the Gatorade bottle sized exit wound. ...

No such thing as overkill. There is simply dead, and not dead. Degrees of death only exists in the Princess Bride.
To answer the OP, I would choose a Remington Sendero in 300 RUM. you can hand load ammo to produce velocities similar to 30-06, or to replicate a howitzer.
Glass would be either...
